accessory report: join the raffia mafia

raffia mafia


While typically reserved for flamboyantly floppy sunhats and hip-shaking hula dancers, raffia has been granted a new life this summer season thanks to big-name design houses like Dolce and Gabbana and Tory Burch. The easy-going feeling of the straw material mixed with punchy colors and glamorous gems provide the perfect summertime accessory.

When shopping for your own ravishing raffia, look for bright colors and a mix of funky textures and metals, which will add sophistication to the piece. Try an oversized raffia necklace with a solid tank and a breezy blazer for the perfect ratio of island chill and city chic.
